EPA seeks comment on carbon rule replacement

EPA seeks comment on carbon rule replacementThe U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on Monday issued a notice that it wants public input for a possible replacement of Obama-era regulations on carbon dioxide emissions from power plants that the agency is repealing. The agency's advance notice kicks off a 60-day comment period on "specific topics for the Agency to consider in developing any subsequent proposed rule," according to an EPA release. The move comes after the agency proposed in October to repeal the Obama administration's Clean Power Plan, a collection of emissions standards for U.S. states intended to reduce pollution from power plants - the largest emitters of greenhouse gases - by 32 percent below 2005 levels by 2030.
